Reaching out. - June 14th 2018, 08:25 PM

[FONT=""][COLOR=""][SIZE=""]I want to reach out for support and advice on TeenHelp, but I am scared to.

It also won't let me create threads in individual forums, it keeps telling me I don't have privileges.

But I don't want to use my account to ask for support and advice.

I wish I was able to use the TH Anonymous account to ask for support and advice. I don't know why I can't.[/SIZE][/COLOR][/FONT]

Hello,
I am so sorry that you are having a hard time right now. And I hope that you will be okay soon. Whatever you are going through and you post a new thread no one is going to make fun of you and we will do our best to help you and support you with what you're going through. Also if you would like a little more privacy you can use the helplink or the live help to help you with what you are going through. I hope that you will be okay.

[FONT=""][COLOR=""][SIZE=""]Thank you. It's more like I am older than a lot of the users on here and I'm at an age where I should have all my sheeps lined up in order. But I don't, far from it. I'm just beginning, at the place where I should have been when I was about your age or around there. Over the past few days, I have been doing a lot of thinking and TeenHelp has somehow become my home over the past several years. I really don't want to leave this lovely site or the people that come with it.

But I am embarrassed reaching out on my account. [/SIZE][/COLOR][/FONT]

Hello there,

No matter how old someone is, it doesn't mean you have everything in order in your life. Everyone has stages with their personal journey or mental health.

If reaching out is embarrassing for you know that there is no shame in doing so no matter how old you are. Everyone deserves support and care when things aren't going well.

If you are uncomfortable reaching out through your account you can always use HelpLINK for some support.

Take care.

Hello,

Everyone needs help time to time. And it is totally fine asking for help with whatever you are going through. Please do not be scared of asking for help. You can always come onto the helplink or live help if you do not want to use you're account. It is private and you can say whatever you need that you were going through and we will always help you the best that we can. Be brave you can do it. I wish you the best. And I hope that you will be okay soon.

Re: Reaching out. - June 15th 2018, 02:04 AM

I don't think anyone ever gets to a place where they don't struggling. I suppose that there might be older people who have certain things figured out but from talking to people older than myself (50's, 60's and 70's) you don't ever really have it all in order.

Some people also take a bit more time to change or get their life in order. I've only just started my first real job when people my age have careers. It sucks but the thing is, that doesn't take away from my accomplishment. I imagine the same thing applies for you. People your age might have certain things going on or figured out; you might only be starting to work on those things but it's still an accomplishment. You can't base your achievements off of your peers because we all grow and change at different rates.

That being said, I am unsure why you don't have access to the anonymous feature. I know for HelpLINK you can log out of your account and submit tickets that way. I do it like that although I feel my email address used is identifying. I suppose you could change yours if you feel yours might be.

In regards to the anonymous feature, contact Rob and explain what you are getting. Maybe show Rob a screen shot so he knows exactly what is happening and can assist you. That way you might be able to figure out what's causing it and, hopefully, get the privilege back.
